Plenty of morning clouds through mid morning. By the parade, clouds will be breaking for partial sunshine and warming temps thanks to a light west wind at the surface. Highs will climb into the Lwr 80′s with a warm humid feel. We are tracking a shortwave which will be pushing south into New England. A cold front will push through the region during the afternoon and likely fire up some scattered convection in the form of a few showers or thunderstorms. The best chance of these showers and storms will be around 2 PM-6 PM before exiting the coast tonight. They will come with brief downpours and small hail. No severe weather is expected….but and isolated an strong storm is certainly possible. Cooler drier air will follow in tonight with clearing skies. Cool in the valleys thanks to radiational cooling. A great night for sleeping.
An upper level closed low over the maritimes will push down into Maine Sunday. This will come with a beautiful comfortable airmass with NW winds supplying a dry warm land breeze for most. Mostly sunny skies with a few fair weather cumulus by the afternoon….especially north closer to the cold pool. Winds will be light and turn onshore for a PM seabreeze which will keep temps in the 70′s at the coast and some Lwr 80′s inland, even mid 80′s in the west away from onshore winds.
Weak High pressure in place to start off Monday which shifts offshore. After a sunny start, High to mid level clouds will be increasing during the afternoon ahead of a piece of convection which will break off from the Great Lakes and move towards new England Monday night. Onshore winds at the coast keep it cooler. Temps inland will still be in the Lwr 80′s. Best chance of showers will be late Monday night into early Tuesday.
A warm front will remain stalled south of Tuesday, with clouds and scattered lighter showers in the 70′s. Weak high pressure builds back in Wednesday with increasing sun and highs near 80.
By Thursday-Friday, a more substantial weather system will be approaching the northeast. A low will track through the Great Lakes with a warm front pushing towards New England Thursday with showers and scattered storms. Warmer more humid air will be advecting into the region, but clouds and showers will keep temps in the 70′s and 60′s. Showers will linger through Thursday night before tapering off Friday…still abundant cloud cover, breaks of sun and an afternoon thunderstorm.
Now…the Fun Stuff! As the title suggested…it is a weekend to celebrate! The Bruins have taken the Cup back to Boston. There are many bandwagon fans out there, but it is easy to get caught up in the the play of the Bruins the past few weeks. What a run! I salute all the Bruins fans who have been there the whole way through the years. Your loyalty and love for your team is being rewarded today. This day is for you! Tomorrow is for the Dads. What a day it will be! A great day for a round of golf, fishing, boating, biking…relaxing. Being a father of 4, there is nothing better you can do in this life. I will look back upon my short time on Earth with my children being the most wonderful part about it.
Finally, Summer right around the corner on Tuesday with the Summer Solstice officially at 1:16 PM. Time to get busy living!
